Testimonials
Mary is absolutely the person you want to have on your team when buying or selling a home! She is an expert at the ins and outs of the NYC real estate process, is constantly working to improve her knowledge, and is a tireless advocate. We recently sold a condo apartment in Queens and bought a coop apartment in Manhattan and really couldn’t have done it without Mary. Her sense of timing is impeccable, her advice invaluable. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

I felt like I was looking at apartments with a close family friend. Mary was completely invested in my search for a new apartment. She devoted countless hours in reassuring texts, checking in often, as well as climbing far more stairs in walk-up apartments than I thought possible. Mary has a down-to-earth quality about her that was comforting to be around and yet, she could turn on business savvy and New York real estate guru when we were actually seeing apartments. I felt incredibly taken care of and well represented in my search. And I LOVE my new apartment

Mary Torres was key to the sale of our unit in City Lights, for virtually the asking price! She recommended and supervised modest modifications, performed by local people. The attorney she recommended to represent us was reasonable and extremely thorough. Great work, Mary!

Mary was amazing! As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and Mary answered all of them and walked me through the entire process to help me find an apartment I love.
